What happens when a child loses a parent to a work-related fatality? What happens when that family’s main source of income ends to their children’s educational opportunities and aspirations?
Kids Chance of Indiana (KCIN) is a non-profit that provides college and vocational scholarships to eligible children of Indiana workers who were totally disabled or fatally injured due to a work-related accident. Established in 1996, KCIN has awarded over 125 scholarships totaling more than $280,000.00, averaging approximately $2,400.00 per student.
But there is so much more we could achieve. KCIN would like to increase the number of scholarships awarded each year and raise the average amount awarded to $5,000.00, thereby further reducing our students unmet needs. It would take an additional $30,000 to $50,000 annually which, with the generosity of potential corporate partners and donors like you, we believe we can realize.
Please consider supporting KCIN as a corporate sponsor or by participating in our golf outing, which is our primary annual fundraiser. Click Read More for additional information regarding that event and sponsorships.
Further if you have a referral or knowledge of a child impacted by a fatal or totally disabling injury of a parent from an Indiana work accident please let me know so we can reach out to them. You can additional information on our website, https://www.kidschancein.org.
Thank you for your consideration and if you interested in sponsoring or have any questions regarding this worthy organization please contact Darren Dye at [email protected] or (317) 233-3394.
